A pandemic has decimated humanity. The world is struggling to survive. And at the centre of this is a teenage girl named Ellie, and the man tasked with taking her across America.

The Last of Us on PlayStation 3 introduces us to Joel, a hardened survivor hired to smuggle Ellie out of the quarantine zone and across America. As they travel, you’ll encounter a stunningly-realised America that has been reclaimed by nature, and take the characters on an emotional journey as long and fraught as their cross-country trek.

Acclaimed creators Naughty Dog, deliver a genre-defining experience that combines action and survival like never before. The Last of Us boasts new AI that constantly adapts during combat, but in this bleak future survival isn’t just about fighting enemies, it’s about scavenging the things you need to live day-to-day.

The Last Of Us is set for release on 7th May 2013.
